Shimmerz Kid!



I love the handmade traditional part of Christmas at our house! This is my son, Curtis using Shimmerz Paints in "Tickle Me Turquoise" to create a paper bracelet for each of his sisters. Yes, kids can use Shimmerz too because they are a safe, non-toxic product, and kids LOVE the sparkle, even boys! "Mama, I love Shimmerz...They are so beautiful. My sisters will love these!" He also used "Bed of Roses" Shimmerz Spritz on the pink flower, "Bamboo Leaf" Shimmerz Spritz on the green one, and "Baby's Breath" Shimmerz Spritz on all of the bracelet cuffs. The gift bags he made were using 3 snowflake die cuts placed on the bags as masks, "Rockafella Blue" Shimmerz Spritz, "Bed of Roses" Shimmerz Spritz, and "Bamboo Leaf" Shimmerz Spritz, separately. He cut of the tops of the bags using a pair of decorative edge scissors. Needless to say, I think he is hooked!

Valentine's Day is right around the corner! Stock up on those Shimmerz Paints early..."Royal Red", "Hottie Pink", "Cotton Candy" Spritz...get a headstart with your kiddos and create the prettiest Valentines in the classroom!

Have a great New Year's!
